    Hello I am starting a new project to replace the crap old carburetor for my jeep that everyone has issues with, my question is the Cylinder Air Cleaner Filter that sits on top can it be replaced and how do I go about it, I want to use the one that comes with the carburetor but I’m not sure how...

    Ok. I have a knock low in my 2001 4.0... I'm pretty sure it's piston slap (roughly 1 RPM) I already pulled the transmission and transfer case to replace the clutch, so in for a penny, in for a pound. The plan is to pull the engine and do the mechanical work myself, and find a machine shop for...

    Newbie here. Bought a manual 2014 JKU a year ago with only 30k on the clock. The syncros on first and second are horrible so my mechanic suggested a well regarded transmission place in Melbourne. They took it for a day and reckoned it wasn’t that bad, and not worth pulling out for a deeper...

    Greetings from a small mediterranean country - Montenegro. I have 1995. Wrangler with 4.0 engine and 32rh auto transmission. I have it since 2012. After going thru hassle with all sorts of issues, shops etc. I have finally decided to do a complete rebuild on my own. Jeep was not a rust bucket...

    First post bear with me. So I've got an '01 TJ 4.0 Sport with a NV3550 and Dana 44. I seem to have lost fifth and reverse - I can put the shifter in position, but it feels like neutral and nothing is there. No grinding, no noises whatsoever. My thought is that either the shift fork is busted...

    I just saw an offer on facebook for a Dana 44 out of a '99 TJ. The axle is completely empty, just the tube and TJ brackets. The guy wants $75 bucks for it... do you guys think this is worth it? Currently running a mostly stock '05 TJ X with the D35 rear. Sitting on 2'' Teraflex springs and...

    All, I’ve got a 1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ in my garage. It’s got a 2.5 L in it and I’m done messing with it. I’m upgrading but I have so many questions and I know most of them are already answered here somewhere. So if there are threads already started that I can use, please point me to them if you...

    I was hoping somebody could explain this to me. I'm abroad and need to order a "MASTER OVERHAUL TRANSMISSION REBUILD KIT - INCLUDING PISTONS" for my 2007 JK with a 42RLE So I looked on eBay and found different variations with that title. Can anybody tell me what this should include. And I was...
  11. TJ Technical Discussion
    Hey everyone! Long story short... A few weeks ago, Dec 4th, I bought a 1998 TJ SE 2.5L 167k miles. On the morning of Dec 24th, the engine developed a knocking. I thought it might be coming from the lifters, so I tried some oil additives (Rislone, Valve Medic, Lucas) to quiet noisy lifters...

    I've been a long time lurker. I'm a new Jeep owner, bought my first TJ in March. It has been a blast. Had to replace some radiator hoses, did an oil change, and the oil pressure sending unit. While the Jeep was on the lift, I saw some of the worst frame rust and rotting I have ever seen on any...

    Hey everyone. So I know its pretty non-standard to do a compression test on an engine stand. However, I didnt feel like installing a possible bad engine since it has 75k miles and was from a new source. I purchased the engine from a reputable jeep shop and the ad claimed their compressions...
  14. YJ Technical Discussion
    I've searched around this forum and google looking for options, but most point towards forums that got out of control with "what if's".... I'd like to keep this simple, please. The 2.5L block currently in my (my wife's) '95 YJ has been welded because I am thrifty, and bought the cheap...

Never done a rebuild before but how hard can it be. Got sent on a really long work trip or i would be starting much sooner. I needed to...
  16. TJ General Discussion
    My jeep decided to take a turn on me - by breaking a connecting rod. After replacing the timing chain, push rods and lifters it was confirmed by my mechanic. I am leaning towards getting a new used engine, but am not sure if doing a rebuild would be a better route, or getting a crate engine some...
  17. TJ Technical Discussion
    My quandary is: Do I rebuild the '05 Rocky Mountain (frame up restoration) using the body and axles from the '01 Jeep Sahara that will have a rebuild title? Or, do I perform a frame up restoration of the '01 Jeep Sahara using the engine, driveline, wiring, all of the interior hardware and seats...
